Hi ..... my english is not good.
I want to ask a little questions.

I have Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti AMP Edition 2GB and Core 2 Duo E7500.
My power supply model number is ATX-550w Pentium 4.
Is this power supply enough for Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti AMP Edition 2GB and Core 2 Duo E7500 ?

Thank You. :)

What's the brand and model ?
It's not pentium 4, specifications of the psu if possible.
A decent psu within 400W-450W will do, but i don't know if you have a decent one.

The 650 ti needs 20A on it's +12v rail, that psu has 19A, and it's from a no name brand, but it might do, but it's risky.

If i use this power supply, what will happen?

example : slow down playing games ?

It might do, but it's a low end quality psu with just 19A, but like i said it might do, it will power the card, but you might encounter freezes or shutdowns.

A decent one from brands like corsair, xfx, seasonic, fsp, ocz, corsair, pc power and cooling, antec, super flower.
Basically one of those brands with 400W to 450W, with more than 20A, they will have more than that.

I choose this one "Cooler Master - GX Lite 500W".
Is this good enough?

That one has 36A on it's +12v rail, so it will do, but, cooler master psu are usually junk.

Corsair psu are usually cheap, i don't know which is the country or website so i can't recommend any psu in specific.
